Tummy Tuck Surgery

Patients can undergo tummy tuck surgery at our practice to achieve a flatter abdomen and a trimmer waistline.

The waist and lower abdomen are notorious trouble spots for excess fat. Aging and pregnancy can cause fat to accumulate around the waistline and rapid weight loss (such as after pregnancy) can result in excess and sagging skin. These problems usually cannot be remedied entirely with diet and exercise.

Our Greenwich practice is convenient to the Stamford and White Plains areas, and we also serve patients at our Manhattan location. During a tummy tuck consultation, we will explain what you can expect during and following the procedure.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be a good option to tighten the waistline and abdomen when diet and exercise prove to be futile.  We perform tummy tuck surgery to help patients eliminate fat and excess tissue on the abdomen so that they can attain a trim, attractive figure.

A tummy tuck is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The procedure entails the removal of skin and fat from the abdomen and generally takes two to four hours. During the procedure, we make an incision above the pelvic area. We then tightens the abdominal skin and draw the abdominal muscles together, narrowing the waist. Depending on the patient, we may also perform liposuction to remove any fat deposits. We then remove excess skin and tissue and close the incision.

After Tummy Tuck Surgery

After surgery, patients may experience pain and discomfort, which can be controlled with medication. As with any plastic surgery procedure, we will give tummy tuck patients instructions for care at home so that they heal properly, as well as schedule the necessary follow-up appointments to monitor their recovery.

Most patients can return to work and non-strenuous activities within two to four weeks.

We perform tummy tuck surgery as a single procedure, and as part of our mommy makeovers and post-weight loss plastic surgery, which are comprised of procedures that include breast lift, liposuction, and thigh lift
